Stephenson Street flood scheme

Stephenson Street flood scheme plan


We have appointed engineering consultants Arup to develop a new flood defence scheme for Liswerry, Newport.

The strategic objective of the scheme is to reduce flood risk for the nearby communities and businesses. In 2019 we submitted a business case to secure funding for the scheme and were successful.

Arup have investigated various options in the area and have developed a proposal to provide better flood protection for over 2000 homes and businesses in the area.

Find out more about the current flood risk in Liswerry, and proposals for the new scheme on our project page.
